Slo-pitch tournament attracts 30 teams

Perhaps partially because of their name, which seemed especially ironical as the day was blistering hot, Ice from Edmonton won

Ashley Jackson from SF prepares to slam the ball in the A final against Ice at a slo-pitch tourney held in Sylvan Lake on the August long weekend. SF lost the A final to Ice. Both teams are from Edmonton.

Perhaps partially because of their name, which seemed especially ironical as the day was blistering hot, Ice from Edmonton won the A division of the NSA Slo-pitch tourney held last weekend.

The tournament held at Four Seasons Park Aug. 4, 5 and 6 attracted 30 teams from throughout Alberta.

Second in the A division was SF, followed by Pink Flamingos.

In the B division, Rage took first place, second was Outlaws and Hit N Run won third.

In the C Division, Airtech Legends were first, followed by Vodka, and third was the Other Team.

In the D division, first was won by Loaded Bases, second went to RESLIP and third was won by the Pharm Team.

Provincial director for Alberta, Ryan Dutka said the tournaments are a great drawing card for teams of all calibers.

“We have competitive to very recreational,” he said. “It’s a good family event and it’s great here in Sylvan where everyone can go to the lake afterwards.”
